This new Brad Gates selection is an absolute masterpiece! Slicing-type fruits are stunning, inside and out! This sister selection to Blue Beauty yields loads of 5-ounce, beefsteak-type fruits, very meaty and containing very few seeds. First they ripen yellow, then more toward orange when very ripe. Incredibly attractive with the black anthocyanin splashes really contrasting with the lighter colored skin. The sweet, juicy flesh is marbled yellow to red, and the flavor is fruity and superb. Unusually heat-tolerant; the fruits are great keepers. You can’t go wrong with this one!

What are the pros? Grow, look, and taste great!

What are the cons? None so far.

Review:

These have thrived in my location - zone 10b, 5 miles from the ocean, morning fog, moderate sunshine, a bit of wind. I water deeply twice a week via drip so they stay dry, feed organic tom/veg food per instructions, and spray Neem (pure oil, not extract) often and early. They're the first of my large tomatoes to ripen this year. They look just like the pictures, red, orange, black, and beautiful inside. Really nice for slicing. Taste is subtle. Not a big blast of flavor (at least not mine). Sweet, but not too sweet, with low acid, so well balanced. A bit bigger than the 5oz advertised, coming in at around 9oz each, so about 2 per pound. Also pretty robust - no pest problems. Just a bit of gray leaf speckle of some sort on the bottom parts during our June Gloom overcast, but some copper fungicide and a few days of much welcomed sunshine took care of it. Definitely planting these again.

Review:

Suberb! Hands down one of the best tasting tomatoes I've ever had. Just ate the second harvested tomato for breakfast with a bit salt. :) I pulled it before the top was completely dark purple or very dark orange but, wow! Juicy and sweet but not too sweet. Light orange with pink center. It is a tall plant, 8 ft in mid June, planted in it's final container, a 15 gal root pouch on 3/12. 90 days from tranplant It has dark green foliage with small leaves in supported by the medium Texas tomato cages .There about 20 tomatoes right now. The coverage is thin so I didn't prune it, except the bottom 2 ft . It got early blight in it's first month and none of my others did with the same treatment. I had to water constantly and give extra CalMg. I was able to control it. It's still growing, still flowering at the top all green and it's a hot week of upper 90s all week and warm nights. Bc of the way I grow it needs a little extra TLC,but this is going to be a keeper. I am in Zone 8A,

Review:

I started Lucid Gems for a couple of friends last year, and both of them raved about them and want to grow them again. Of course, I got to try the fruit too, and agreed that they were very flavorful and beautiful. They also were among the last plants still producing in December. However, the plants were not the most robust during growing season (compared with other varieties planted in their gardens), nor were they particularly heavy producers, but they did outlast many, and the fruit was of high quality.

Review:

Beautiful tomato. Was early for a heirloom with constant production. Because of the anthocyanin I did not get sun scald on any of these tomatoes. Shelf life is great. Flavor is superb. I'm zone 10a and Lucid Gem had no problems with the heat. I've grown over 50 varieties of tomato and this is top notch. Will be growing again.

Review:

I like to try Brad Gates's tomatoes because they are so striking. I haven't liked several of them (like the Boar and Ti-Dye ones), but decided to give these a go. I love yellow and red tomatoes, but find they aren't all sweet. So I am pleased that Lucid Gem is sweet! Lucid Gem is producing well for me in high desert/Zone 6 with drip irrigation. I only amend my soil with compost and mulch with straw. If you pick when yellow they are still good; they are excellent when the flesh turns more towards orange and red. There are some color variations within the same plant in that some have more purple smudges on top than others, but that doesn't seem to affect the flavor. So my three go-to tomatoes from Brad Gates are Lucid Gem, Pork Chop and Cosmic Eclipse.
